SupernovaScotians and Smokin’ Guitars
The Trews are one of a parade of Canadian bands who are big in their home country and virtually unknown in America. I discovered these hard rocking Nova Scotians years ago while listening to a Canadian online radio station. Their first album, House of Ill Fame (2003) is easily among my favorite records of the 2000s. They followed up with the very good Den of Thieves in 2005 and the fantastic No Time For Later in 2008. They have a deserved rep for putting on monster live shows (I’ve seen them 4 times) so there was no way I was going to miss them when they hit the House of Blues on April 1, 2008.
